Super-Scary Mochimochi Coming September 18th

My third book of knitted toy patterns, Super-Scary Mochimochi, is set to be released on September 18th! 



Super-Scary Mochimochi is packed with weird, silly, colorful creatures that are guaranteed not to scare you at all really. Knitters can let their imaginations run wild, with fun twists on classic monsters and creepy new species too. There's also a section that lets you put together your own "mix n match" monster, so knitters get to play mad scientist!

You can pre-order Super-Scary Mochimochi from Amazon right now, or you can get it in bookstores in the US starting September 18th. I'll also have signed copies available in my online shop once it's released. 



Pictoplasma Character Compendium

I'm honored to have my work featured in The Character Compendium, a beautiful new book of character art published by Pictoplasma. 



Pictured are pieces from my 2011 show Mochimochi Worlds, held at Smallspace in Berlin, and Mochimochimochimochimochi, a 2011 installation shown at the Lion Brand Yarn Store in NYC. 


Thank you Pictoplasma! 


Mochis on Martha Stewart

The Martha Stewart Show has sadly come to an end, but I was honored to have my book Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi featured on of the last episodes.

A big thank-you to the great people who worked at The Martha Stewart Show, and also to Kim Small at Random House for making this happen! 


Mushroom Hop GIF

My gnome obsession continues, as does my animated GIF obsession. This one was accomplished using a toothpick stuck into the background to make the little guy hop!



Hatching Bunnies

A new animated gif for Easter! Maybe my favorite yet.
